Brad Pitt Owes His Career Success to Strippers

January 23rd, 2007 // 2 Comments

Back before he was the Hollywood golden boy that he is today, Brad Pitt used to chauffer strippers to their gigs. From People:

Talking about one of his first jobs at Newsweek’s annual Oscar roundtable Saturday in Hollywood, Pitt said, “My job was to drive them to bachelor parties and things. I’d pick them up, and at the gig I’d collect the money, play the bad Prince tapes and catch the girls’ clothes. It was not a wholesome atmosphere, and it got very depressing.”

But as luck would have it, Brad discovered acting. More on that after the jump.

“This girl – I’d never met her before – was in an acting class taught by a man named Roy London,” a famous acting coach, he said, according to excerpts in this week’s Newsweek. “I went and checked it out, and it really set me on the path to where I am now.”

He added: “Strippers changed my life.”

That is so weird cause strippers have also had a deep impact on mine as well. As a baby, my parents perished in a horrible guitar accident and I was raised, in the wild, by a pack of friendly strippers. They swaddled me in garter belts and sequined bras and took me in as one of their own.

    Bad Prince tapes?

    That should make for an interesting run in with Pitt and Prince at the Academy Awards.
